I need help to publish the third book in the Assured Destruction Series! ASSURED DESTRUCTION: WITH ZOMBIES.
This isn’t only for me though; Jan needs your help, too! Assured Destruction has been firebombed and the only clue is a length of chain left at the scene.
Insurance won’t cover the cost of repairs to Assured Destruction, Jan’s mom’s catatonic in the hospital, and Jan’s not in much better shape. Will you help with the assured reconstruction of their lives?
Are you ready to see the stunning finale of a book Kirkus Reviews calls “A fun, fast-paced thriller guaranteed to distract teens from Facebook ...”?
We made it!? Already!?
Now it’s time to stretch! More money means more opportunity.
---If we reach $1299 (I’m not superstitious at all...), it will allow me to create a compilation version of all three books together, which I’ll release sometime in the next couple of months.
---If we reach $1500, I’ll include a copy of HURAKAN in every shipment of a book or series of books. This is a rare item! My publisher for this action adventure had a fire and every copy burned except the ones they already shipped to me. As far as I know there are no more than 40 copies in circulation.
And beyond? I dare not hope. Thank you, all!
My favorite comparisons of the series from reviewers are:
'Sybil meets Lisbeth Salander,' the Character Connection's review.
'Veronica Mars combined with the techno-geekdom of Birkhoff from Nikita,' the Plot Thickens' review.
The book’s done. I need help ensuring it’s produced at level of quality equal to that of any major publisher. That includes pro cover art by artist Don Dimanlig, pro editing by Catherine Adams of Inkslinger Editing, and pro formatting by Streetlight Graphics.
That costs money. I'm covering half and I'm asking for help with the other half.
Wait a second ... we now have a cover!!
Oh, and Jan has cats. Help save the cats! Don’t you like cats?
I think it’s really important that you support something worthwhile, so don’t let me tell you it’s an awesome series, I’ll show you. Here are the ratings across all the major sites.
Book 1 -- Assured Destruction
Book 2 -- Script Kiddie
That’s from over 200 different readers. I believe ASSURED DESTRUCTION: WITH ZOMBIES is even better.
Did I mention that book 1 is up for the Foreword Reviews Book of the Year Award? It is!
With your help I can afford to make With Zombies happen in style. Thanks so much for your pledges and for helping to spread the word.
If you've read this far, you deserve a medal! But instead I'll just tell you a little more. See, this isn't only a book series. It includes graphic novel origin stories, live-action Twitter accounts, websites and blogs. It's a universe unto itself! All enabled by cunning code written by PrototypeD,

Risks and challenges
Apocalypse. Severe maiming. I go crazy. Seriously, there's not much that can go wrong. This is a fixed funding campaign and I have fixed costs. Either we make it and you receive your amazing perks or we don’t and everyone is devastated, but it doesn’t cost you a thing.
It's possible that the cover or editing or formatting faces delays but the worst case scenario sees a delay in your receiving your perks a month or two. We'll get there!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
